I have a failing Sparc based Netgear ReadyNAS that uses LVM on Raid with EXT3 partitions with a 16KB block size. I would like to pull the drives out of the NAS and mount them read only in a Linux box. The issue is that from what I have read x86 PCs cannot (could not) read 16 KB blocks. The suggestions I have seen are to use fuse-ext2. The issue is that the information I can find on the web is a number of years old. What is the best way to mount an EXT3 partition with 16 KB blocks?
